A routing specifies the sequence of operations that are required to manufacture a product. These steps can be performed at a work center or machine center, they can include costs, and they manage the production process.  They are the basis for scheduling and are assigned to the item card.

Routings consist of a header and lines.  One of the many useful fields in the header is the active version.  The active version is determined by the starting date on the routing header.


The last line of the routing posts the output to the item card.  You can assign comments, tools, personnel and Quality Measure to a routing line.  Tools are illustrated below. 



 There are two types of throughout time:  productive and non-productive.  Productive time consists of setup time and run time. Setup time is a fixed amount and does not change with the number of units being produced. Non-productive time consists of wait time, move time and queue time.   You can specify these times on the router and they can be defined in different units of measure.
